As someone who grew up in Perham and currently resides in Warroad, I always chuckle when I hear someone talk about being "up north" in Minnesota and referring to like Cambridge or St. Cloud. For me, the term "outstate" is someone further than St. Cloud from the Twin Cities.
Anyway, Adam Thielen has seemingly made this 2014 Minnesota Vikings roster with a strong showing in training camp. Detroit Lakes is certainly outstate, so my question is... in the history of the NFL, how many players actually come from outstate Minnesota?
Bronco Nagurski (International Falls) would be one. Who else can we add from the outstate?
